I you run the code, you will see that text doesn't fit nicely, but there is a lot of white space. I was wondering if there is a way to adjust the amount of white space so they columns fit nicely? I would like my margins to be larger than 0.01 inch. Thank you!

    Your table doesn't have much whitespace in my opinion. See (tex.stackexchange.com/questions/44221/…) for information on rotating your table to landscape so it fits better. – James May 19 '15 at 18:26
  • @James Thank you very much! I used the pdflscape package, and it works really great! – Johnathan May 19 '15 at 18:35

Using the caption, makecell, siunitx, booktabs and ltablex, you can have a better looking table. The latter package brings the functionalities of longtable to tabularx. This allows to have wider margins. I also added with makecell some vertical padding to the rows, and a common formatting of column heads:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{ltablex}
\renewcommand{\tabularxcolumn}[1]{>{\raggedright}p{#1}}
\usepackage{siunitx, makecell, booktabs, caption}
\setcellgapes{2pt}
\renewcommand\theadfont{\normalsize\bfseries}
\renewcommand\theadalign{lc}

  • Thank you very much! I was wondering: how could I align the title inputs to each column? – Johnathan May 19 '15 at 20:32
  • That is, you want them left-aligned? By default they're centred, both vertically an horizontally. – Bernard May 19 '15 at 20:37
  • Yes, I would like them left-aligned. :) Your code is impressive! I have started learning latex to write my thesis. It takes some time, but once I learn it, it will be very useful for other research projects. – Johnathan May 19 '15 at 20:38

    I changed the code to have column heads left-aligned (and in boldface, but you easily can change that). See my updated answer. – Bernard May 19 '15 at 20:50
  • Please don't use two consecutive \bottomrule directives. A single instance should suffice. – Mico May 19 '15 at 21:04

I halved \tabcolsep, changed some numeric columns from l to r and added some booktabs rules to have a but of extra space.
